Gift Shop manager Betsy Bender is pictured holding one of the first new copies of "OKLAHOMA SEMINOLES: Medicines, Magic, and Religion". Out of print for nearly a decade, the book is THE definitive work on Seminole traditional culture and ceremonialism.

The280-page, softbound book contains 12 chapters on such topics as herbal remedies, sports and games, Green Corn, magic and witchcraft, the Seminole cosmos, and much, much more. It is an invaluable resource on Seminole, Creek and Southeastern Native traditions.

It is priced at $19.95 + tax. We have a dozen copies in stock now. To get a copy immediately, drop by the museum in Wewoka or call 405/257-5580. It will be available on our website in the days to come,
